What is more classic than the bateau neck top? I have always loved the simple, enigmatic shape. Sporty yet feminine on girls, strong yet casual on boys. Practically a requirement for the seaside but perfect for school days too. It's as comfortable as a t-shirt but with a bit more tailoring. The three-quarter sleeves bridge the seasons. What could be better?
This Bateau Neck Top pattern includes a design for the classic as well as some modern options. Make it in lightweight or medium cotton knits , fleece, or even boiled wool. Add pockets, a ruffle around the neck, or buttons up the back. The buttoned version can even be made in woven fabrics. With a variety of bottoms it is practically a year-round wardrobe. And cute too!
